Land Rights Movements in Asia

Looking for contributors to join this panel for the Asian Studies Association of Australia

Conference, Sydney, July 3-5, 2018. 

Throughout Asia, land-grabbing and other forms of agrarian dispossession have intensified

in recent decades. As a result, various social movements, such as peasant, environmental, indigenous people’s, and urban poor movements, have sprung up and mobilized to advocate for land rights and influence state land policies. Plenty have been written on local and national case studies, but multi-country and region-wide analyses of this phenomenon are still relatively underexplored. This panel, therefore, seeks to comparatively discuss Asian land rights movements. We welcome paper proposals on any aspects of movements for land rights (and other related topics) in the region

Abstracts are due on 31 October 2017. Please send your abstract to convenor, Iqra Anugrah (ianugrah1[at]
